DCK Webinar: Data Center Build vs. Buy

When you need data center space, do you build your own or buy space from a data center wholesale company? Join Data Center Knowledge contributor Julius Neudorfer on Wednesday, September 4 for a special webinar in which Julius will discuss Build vs. Buy, the age-old question for many industries. DCK Editor-in-chief, Rich Miller, will moderate.

When making the decision to build vs. buy, in some cases the decision is driven by hard number-crunching business analytics, yet in other cases, it is driven by human emotion. On one hand, decisions made in the design and build stages will not only affect the total CapEx of the data center, but will forever impact its energy efficiency and long term operating costs, as well as limiting the functional life of the data center. On the other hand, today’s market offers a wide array of facility providers to lease and operate fully managed sites.  How do you determine which solution is best for your business?

While there are a multitude of factors to be considered, in the end you will have to ask if building, owning and operating your own data center is a strategic advantage to your business, or just a burden on internal resources and capital.
